THE SACRED PASCHAL TRIDUUM

This Thursday we begin the Paschal Triduum, the most sacred celebrations of our Liturgical year culminating in the Joy of our Easter celebration of the Resurrection of the Lord. Of course, ideally, we would gather in church to observe these rites. However, in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, we stay apart, staying home to mitigate it’s spread and to keep everyone safe and healthy. Let me share some suggestions on how you may observe these days at home.

HOLY THURSDAY
View the live streaming of Bishop Dennis Sullivan’s celebration of the evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper at 7:00 PM. You can find it on the diocesan website (camdendiocese.org) or Facebook or YouTube.  Our St. Thomas More parish message is on our parish website with the link to our Facebook page for a video presentation of it.  At home, you can gather in your living room, perhaps with a lit candle, and read and reflect upon the Scripture readings:

Old Testament: Exodus 12:1-8, 11-14
New Testament: I Corinthians 11:23-26
Gospel: John: 13:1-5

Then, process to your dining table and pray the Lord’s Prayer.

Please remember that, to discourage any gatherings, all the churches in the diocese will remain closed on Holy Thursday evening.

GOOD FRIDAY
View the live streaming of Bishop Dennis Sullivan’s celebration of the Passion of the Lord at 3:00 PM.  You can find it on the diocesan website (camdendiocese.org) or Facebook or YouTube.  Our St. Thomas More parish message will be found on our parish website with the link to our Facebook page for a video presentation of it.  At home, you can gather before a Crucifix and read and reflect upon the Scripture readings:

Old Testament: Isaiah 52:13-53:12
New Testament: Hebrews 4:14-16, 5:7-9
Gospel: John: 18:1-19:42

Then, process to your dining table and pray the Lord’s Prayer.

HOLY SATURDAY
Holy Saturday remains a day of quiet with no liturgical celebrations until the Easter Vigil in the evening.  View the live streaming of Bishop Dennis Sullivan’s celebration of the Easter Vigil Supper at 7:00 PM.

The sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) will be available at St. Thomas More on Holy Saturday from 3:00 to 4:00 in the afternoon. Please come to the parish office entrance and ring the bell.

A Coronavirus Prayer
Jesus Christ, you traveled through towns and villages “curing every disease and illness.” At your command, the sick were made well. Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of the coronavirus, that we may experience your healing love.

Heal those who are sick with the virus. May they regain their strength and health through quality medical care.

Heal us from our fear, which prevents nations from working together and neighbors from helping one another.

Jesus Christ, healer of all, stay by our side in this time of uncertainty and sorrow.

Be with the families of those who are sick or have died. As they worry and grieve, defend them from illness and despair. May they know your peace.

Be with the doctors, nurses, researchers and all medical professionals who seek to heal and help those affected and who put themselves at risk in the process.  May they know your protection and peace.

Whether we are home or abroad, surrounded by many people suffering from this illness or only a few, Jesus Christ, stay with us as we endure and mourn, persist and prepare. In place of our anxiety, give us your peace.

Jesus Christ, heal us.
